Day One: We are Strong only in the Lord, the Lord is Strong

Zephaniah 3:17
The Lord your God is with you,
the Mighty Warrior who saves.
He will take great delight in you;
in his love he will no longer rebuke you,
but will rejoice over you with singing.”

“The Lord is strong, he has given us his mighty power. He is a warrior, God and King, and has worked righteousness and salvation himself for his people. He is victorious, mighty to save, full of love and delight, and fully able to rescue us. This is the warrior Paul had in mind. He rescued us not in the way we would have imagined. He has conquered death, sin, and the bondage in our lives through his work on the cross. It is in this warrior God that we receive our armor.” [paraphrased from Brenda’s message]

We are strong only in the Lord. This is the full armor we have received and can put on every day to stand firm. As we declare this, let’s worship to, “Exalted Over All by Vertical Worship.

Prayer:  Lord, you are our Mighty Warrior who saves! You are strong and mighty to rescue us and we are victorious because of what you have done on the cross for us.  You alone are worthy! In Jesus’ name, Amen.
